The year was 1995. One Sunday morning Gary Pomeroy, Ric Carter and Greg Pappas met to discuss pursuing an all original music project. As professionals, we were disillusioned by a decaying local music business but, also inspired by an explosion in the recording industry. We were willing to try anything except covers and unwilling to accept mediocrity in any department. Our goal: to gather the best musicians available. Over a ten year period the three core members discovered that finding other like-minded musicians would be more difficult than they had expected.
